Tuxedo Waitor Gives Connections All American Quarter Horse Congress Stakes Double at Belterra

CINCINNATI, OH—OCTOBER 8, 2017—Jockey Oscar Macias swept the two Quarter Horse stakes on the card at Belterra on Sunday, ending the day with a win in the $15,000 All American Quarter Horse Congress Maturity aboard Tuxedo Waitor.

Tuxedo Waitor ($12.80) is trained by Jesus Gonzalez, Jr. and is owned by San Ignacio QH Inc, the same owner-trainer combination behind One Jess Streakin, winner of the $15,000 All American Quarter Horse Congress Futurity in the previous race.

Bred in California by Francisco Colorado, Tuxedo Waitor is by Tr Dasher, out of Moms, by Jazzing Hi. The lightly raced 5-year-old gelding has now won four of his five lifetime starts. After finishing second in his debut at Hialeah, Tuxedo Waitor won his last four races at Hialeah, Hazel and Belterra.

Post time favorite Bp Tres Seis Policy was just a nose behind the winner and cleared the rest of the pack by a length with jockey Gabriel Lagunes aboard. Bp Tres Seis Policy is trained by Randy Haffner for owner and breeder Bill Price.

Price bred the 4-year-old filly in Oklahoma, by Tres Seis, out of the Corona Cartel mare Cc Policy, winner of the 2007 Oklahoma Futurity (G1). Bp Tres Seis Policy has earned over $52,000 in her 17 lifetime starts and four wins during a career that began at Remington and has continued primarily at Indiana Grand.

Haffner and Price also teamed up on the third-place finisher and half-brother to Bp Tres Seis Policy, Bp Im the Man. The 3-year-old gelded son of First Down Dash was also bred in Oklahoma; Jockey Vernon Bush had the call for Sunday’s race. Bp Im the Man is still a maiden, but has finished in the money in ten of his 14 career starts.

Completing the field were Seize the Win, Redhotluie, Gridiron Girl B, Absolut Teller and Dashin for a Train. Bluesville, Fast N Famous Eagle, Jes a Spitfire, Pistolpacking Pepsi and Tres Corona Cash were scratched.
